Well I took the 71 on a nice road trip to PA and back with the mixture
leaned out more, and it seems to be running well and the gas mileage is

Up to something more reasonable, 18 in town and 24 on the highway and that’s
rather heavily loaded.  On the way down it was 62 and the oil temps were

Around 200 so that’s nice, heads running in the 280’s most of the time, on
the way back it was 70 and oil was up to 215-220 with the cooler on, not

especially when cold and advancing the injection timing has helped with that
a lot, but im about 15 degree’s advanced now to compensate for the cam and I
think that’s about as far as I can clearance the distributor for.  I may try
another coil, but im running a MARK 10, so I suspect the spark is not the
